Money laundering is the process by which illegally obtained assets are smuggled into the legal economic cycle and removed from the reach of law enforcement authorities.
For this reason, the Money Laundering Act imposes specific obligations on representatives of certain professional groups, which are intended to help prevent money laundering or the misuse of reputable companies for money laundering purposes. This includes, with some legal exceptions, organizers and brokers of games of chance.
If you have information about possible or actual violations of the Money Laundering Act (such as: a company does not identify its contractual partners), you can report this as a personalized or anonymous tip to the responsible supervisory authority.
Whistleblowers can make valuable contributions to uncovering the misconduct of individuals or entire companies and to containing or correcting the negative consequences of this misconduct.
Whistleblowers represent an important source of intelligence for regulators about gambling operators and intermediaries. Such tips may include confidential information that whistleblowers learn from their employment or other contractual or confidential relationships and that they bring to the attention of the competent supervisory authority.
The relevant supervisory authority will investigate each tip and determine whether there has been a breach of regulatory requirements. The supervisory authorities protect your identity by offering you the opportunity to submit your information anonymously via an electronic whistleblowing system.
The district government responsible for the place where public gambling is organized or brokered is responsible for receiving tips concerning organizers and brokers of games of chance.
